Team “Bender” (composed of undergrads Bryce Boe, Adam Doupe, and Scott
Bonebrake), took 5th place and some cool cash in the regional programming
contest Saturday Nov 11th. Organized by undergrad Matt Hielscher and
Professor Tim Sherwood, the ACM programming teams keep getting better each
and every year. This year, team bender proved to be a nearly unstoppable
programming machine — able to solve 5 of 7 problems, besting all
the teams from UCSD, UCLA, and many of the other programming contest
powerhouses. Only the top team from Caltech was able to solve more
problems in the alloted time. You can see the ridiculously hard problems
